- How We Work
The Colorado Health Foundation has chosen seven priority areas where we believe our efforts can make a real difference in the health of people throughout Colorado. We know that these areas are connected and if we address them, together, we can make an impact on the unfair differences in health and opportunities that exist in Colorado.
How We Work to Achieve Health Equity
Every day, we work to create health equity for all Coloradans, especially those for whom health is furthest from reach due to avoidable, unfair or systemically caused differences. That means we prioritize communities of color, and intend to disrupt racist systems and structures by pursuing racial justice as a key pathway to achieve health equity. This commitment to centering equity and justice extends to all aspects of how we engage in the work, both internally and out in communities across Colorado.
Funding Critical Work
To ensure Coloradans across our state can achieve better health outcomes, the Colorado Health Foundation supports impactful work, ideas and policy in communities and across our focus areas.
Evaluating Our Impact
Learning and evaluation is a way to inform and improve our work and help others understand our approaches and the difference we’re making as a Foundation.
Advancing Goals Through Policy Advocacy
In order to help all Coloradans live their healthiest lives, we work closely with partners across the state to advance our critical policy advocacy goals across all areas of focus.
